Offered: Kemp/Haren for Ethier/Jimenez...100%WHIR

Postby philaphan » Sat Apr 02, 2011 12:15 pm

Was sent this offer:
HIS: Kemp/Haren
for
MY: Ethier/Jimenez

I am on the fence with this one. I have Holliday and he will be heading to the DL for possibly 2-6 weeks. Once back Holliday should be fine. Kemp is an upgraded over Ethier. Haren would be a down grade from Jimenez. My pitching is not the greatest to begin with.

Advice please! Is this trade worth it? Or should I stand pat? My Rostter is below.......100% WHIR just leave a link!

I dont really see the need for this trade. It is a straight OF-OF for a SP-SP trade so there is no gaining of a position of need for you. The OF are pretty equal and Jiminez outweighs Haren by a little bit I think. Stay put

help plz

Thx for the hel P Phan


Yup, no need for it and in a honesty it is an equal trade. You might gain in SB and that is it but Lose some K's

I would make that deal
Kemp is a top 10 player imho and it would give you a stellar OF which is pretty needed for a top team.

Sure, Haren to Jiminez is a downgrade but you've Weaver and a lot of upside pitchers.

I'd pull the trigger on this.

Kemp is a big upgrade over Ethier, and I don't think Haren is very much of a downgrade from Jimenez.

The trade seems very fair to me. I think Kemp will be better than Ethier and HAren is a quality pitcher as well
